Give a Refugee Child Hope Again

By sponsoring a refugee child, you can change a life

Five-year-old Mustafa* stands with his arm around his sister, 3-year-old sister Fatima,* in the doorway of their family's temporary shelter in the suburbs of Idleb. The family has been living in Idleb a few months after they were forced to leave their hometown because of the violent clashes and heavy bombardment. The building used to be a coal store, so the children are constantly covered in black coal dust. Since 2012, we've led a large, complex response to the war in Syria, reaching children and families in besieged areas, as well as in refugee camps and host communities.

One-year-old Eman* holds two baby dolls and stands outside surrounded by dirt and cement walls. Eman survived an airstrike in a village of Arhab District in Yemen but her face was badly burned by the explosion, causing her eyes to swell severely. Although her physical condition has improved, she and other children of village, including her 6-year-old sister Lamees,* remain in shock following the attack and the horror they witnessed. Save the Children is providing psychological support to Eman and other girls and boys affected by the attack to help them overcome their traumatic experiences.
